Honey Glazed chicken is one of our all time favorites. It's easy to make, and very delicious. One large chicken will feed a family of 5, and you can make a batch of chicken broth with the bones and giblets afterward.
Both our pastured Broilers and Roasters work well for this dish.
The recipe is adapted from the book The grass fed gourmet by Shannon Hayes.
1 3-5 lb Chicken
3/4 cup all purpose Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
Preheat your oven to 350*
Cut up your chicken, then combine the flour, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Coat the chicken in the flour mixture until its thoroughly coated.
Pour the melted butter over the chicken in a pan. Make sure it's thoroughly coated.
Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
Mix together the Sugar, Lemon, Honey, Soy sauce, and curry powder. After the initial 30 minute bake is over, pour over the chicken, and bake 45 minutes longer. You can occasionally baste the chicken with the sauce if you want the glaze to be thicker.
Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.
